The 2015 TNM Super League season concludes next week but almost all the clubs owe Super League of Malawi (Sulom) some money in registration and affiliation fees.
Sulom general secretary Williams Banda confirmed that the clubs owe Sulom about K12 million (about $18,909).
The general secretary has since urged clubs to pay the money by the end of the season or face the consequences.
“The new Sulom constitution is very clear on such things,” Banda said.
“The rules and regulations will apply without fear or favour.”
Banda said Sulom had already sent warning letters to clubs to pay the debts.
The clubs that will not pay by the end of the season risk being suspended since Article 7 of the Sulom constitution only acknowledges clubs that have paid affiliation fees in full.
“Where a club does not pay affiliation fees within the period stated in paragraph 1 above, it shall automatically lose its status as an affiliate thirty (30) days after the commencement of the season,” the constitution’s Article 7 reads in part.
“The executive committee may suspend an affiliate that has habitually violated its obligations as an affiliate under this constitution for such a period as the executive committee may deem suitable. Provided that such suspension shall only take effect after Sulom has accorded the affected affiliate the opportunity to be heard.” n
